OC Weekly's Description

Canyon, Rich Mead's new venture, is a migration inland for the chef, following the recessionary trend that saw other coastal cooks such as Takashi Abe of Bluefin and Mark Norris of White Horses head for higher ground. Mead has lowered the prices a bit, but his food appears largely unchanged. His signature herb-roasted half chicken still has that coveted skin turned to a chicharrón. It's so well-rendered it separates itself from the meat. With a swooping curl and gnarled crunch of a kettle-cooked potato chip, it tastes of pure poultry-ness.

Tips from foursquare

  • Eileen M. on 07/13/12

    Nice place to stop in for something small or to split with a friend. Skip the dining room and sit in the bar.

  • Tamara B. on 09/19/11

    don't sit in the bar area in the evening unless you're a sports fan

  • Lacy M. on 08/31/11

    Not THAT delicious... Or maybe just ordered the wrong thing?

  • Christi S. on 08/26/11
